OK, so I got a bit carried away with the pond theme! Still, I thought I would share this one with you and the DT over at CASology.
This is the card I started with, but the idea for the lily pad took over (see earlier post). Later I went back to my craft table and rediscovered the little duck and the 'pond' I'd made. I decided to finish the card and I'm happy that I did, it's a cute one, don't you think? The stamp is from an SU set called Easy Events, and I cut out the duck and umbrella after colouring with my Promarkers. The trickiest bit was masking the stamp to get the sentiment on it's own at the top. Finally I added a paper twine bow and a scored frame.
